Daniel Defense AR's

So what do you guys think of Daniel Defense. Anybody have any experience with them. I noticed tonight on Davidson's Gallery of Guns...now Gun Genie..they got a large shipment of them in. THey listing for 1600 but can get it sent to my gun dealer for 1500. Seems a bit high to me. Was kind of thinking about another AR. This seems kind of high. I also thought about a LWRC gas piston, those are sweet, but that's going to cost me upwards of 2000. Anyway, back to my point, what's your experience, thoughts about Daniel Defense AR's.. Thanks.

Right now you can buy a Colt LE 6920 for around 1250.00, thats what I would buy instead of the Daniel. Here's why Daniel Defense is not tried and tested out in the market as well as the Colt, the Colts LE once a ban is back in place will sky rocket in price Daniel Defense will not, Colts are already tested in the field. Daniel Defense is more of the "hey add on this and that type of weapon" the Colt is well what it is very good battle rifle. DD is not worth the extra money in my opinion.

Just my 2 cents.

Nitris Thanks Nitris.

Thanks Nitris. Always the man with the sensible advice. I had just never heard much about Daniel Defense, other than their rails, and was curious as to why they are so expensive and if they were worth it. It probably would be better and cheaper to go with a colt. Thanks again.
